Drumheller Town Coun­cil seeks to en­gage with res­i­dents

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS -

Town Coun­cil is reach­ing out to bet­ter en­gage res­i­dents in con­ver­sa­tion about their town.

At Coun­cil’s re­cent Strate­gic Plan­ning Ses­sion, Mayor and Coun­cil agreed to be more en­gaged with the pub­lic. It be­gins with a ques­tion and an­swer pe­riod where the pub­lic are en­cour­aged to come to Town Hall up­stairs ev­ery sec­ond Mon­day, com­menc­ing on De­cem­ber 5th at 4 p.m. (prior to the Coun­cil Com­mit­tee Meet­ings) to meet with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor.

The pub­lic will have the op­por­tu­nity to ques­tion Coun­cil to bet­ter un­der­stand why Coun­cil makes the de­ci­sions they do.

Mayor Ye­men states, “En­gag­ing with the pub­lic is valu­able for Coun­cil so that we move for­ward in a col­lab­o­ra­tive ap­proach. Coun­cil can­not ef­fec­tively ad­dress needs and con­cerns of the pub­lic that we do not fully un­der­stand and vice versa, the pub­lic needs to be aware of the rea­sons be­hind Coun­cil’s de­ci­sions”.

“Come to Town Hall on the sched­uled Q&A dates and we will en­gage for the bet­ter­ment of our com­mu­nity.”
